Every now and then I meet people that are very creative, fun, and most importantly nice. I met Heather at a fashion show this October by randomly taking her picture (which came out blurry). We later got the chance to hang out at an event in the Inland Empire and get to know each other better. I found out that she is extremely talented (making one of a kind fascinators and her own dresses) and has a great sense of style. Here is your chance to get to know her a little better!
